Wow, I didn't realise how long it had been since I last posted but my Bee fabric arrived through the letter bx this morning and has spurred me into action again :)
The task this month has been set by Judith of Needles and Lemons, and it is for ANY red and white block- kinda scary!
I love redwork quilts and have been thinking about embroidery; at first I found some lovely fairy tale designs (the Princess and the Pea was my absolute favourite!) but I didn't think that was personal enough. Then I saw a quilt made from town landmarks -sorry I forgotten who/ where it was, and I thought something from Judith's hometown would be lovely... but what is more personal than your own home- and I spend most days drawing houses after all! So I thought an embroidery sketch of the front elevation would be nice, but on second thoughts I have always loved doors and it really is the most easily identifiable bit of your home.
So Judith, my first idea is a redwork embroidered block of your front door. What do you think? I know you said that you didn't want any blocks with obvious corners so I was thinking a white block with an inset red sashing (unfortunately the white edge didnt show up very well in my mock up)
Still thinking about my second block, which will probably be a conventional block but I am not sure which yet.
Thank you for the freedom Judith, I am really loving the research in this challenge :)
